The Prime exclusive is directed by Mat Whitecross, and is set to land on the streamer on 5th October after a preview at the BFI Southbank on 1st October.

"The feature documentary pulls back the curtain on the remarkable history of six decades of James Bond music, taking viewers on a journey from Sean Connery’s Dr No through to Daniel Craig’s final outing in No Time to Die," reads a a synopsis for the documentary.

It will also feature commentary from a number of famous faces, including Bond producer Barbara Broccoli. In a trailer for The Sound of 007, Broccoli explains why Bond's score is so important.

"James Bond the character doesn't spend a lot of time talking about what he's doing or what he's feeling so the music has always had to kind of give you a sense of what's going on within Bond," she says.

"The adrenaline, the tension, the joy, the anxiety. You hear the Bond theme and it gives you that shot."
